Peterson’s 358 Series adds Surface-mount Versatility to its LED Interior Lighting

Peterson Manufacturing expanded its line of USA-made LED interior lighting with the new 358 Series. The 358 Series is a lower-profile, flat-back bar light. It is ideal for surface mounting to any trailer center ceiling, sidewall, or utility tool compartment.

Peterson patented the series to meet interior lighting needs of cargo/utility bodies built with floor-to-ceiling storage systems along the sidewalls. As a result, the 358 Series light fits right where lights designed for upper corners don’t fit.

With the 358 Series, builders can ceiling-mount Peterson’s Great White® LED lighting right down the center of the cargo space. The light will then flood shadowy interiors with even, distributed light.


Like its “sister” series, Peterson’s 359 Cove Lights, the new 358s come in three bar lengths: 6 inches, 12 inches, and 18 inches with the same outputs of 300, 500, and 1000 lumens respectively. The multi-volt design is compatible with 12V as well as 24V systems.

Each model is available with either standard 7.5-inch stripped leads or terminated with .180 bullets. Additionally, the 18-inch light features wires on both ends to accommodate daisy-chaining multiple lights. The optimized profile and flat mounting tabs on both ends of each bar easily screw-mount to flat surfaces.

Peterson engineered and designed the 358 lights for robust service and to meet IP67 ratings. The lights feature an integral molded seal and also resist dust, moisture, and vapors and are suitable for exterior use.

All three models work with the optional 5600 Series Timer Box Switch, the perfect companion for controlling Peterson’s LED interior lighting with programmable, push-button ease.

According to Al Anderson, VP of sales and marketing, the addition of the 358 Series rounds out the most advanced, efficient cargo illumination line on the market. “It’s one more way Peterson is keeping solutions on the move for our customers,” Anderson says.
